English term or phrase: MU cables and MU receptacles
¡Hola, todos!
Estoy realizando una traducción sobre la cabina de mando de una locomotora. Me aparecen las siglas MU usadas como adjetivo, sustantivo e incluso como verbo.

He aquí el texto:

Check both front and rear MU cables for signs of being smashed and remove front and rear MU receptacles and check wiring and pins ensure no pins are touching each other. Do the same tests from the unit MU’d into the rear MU.

De antemano, gracias por su tiempo y ayuda.

Explanation:
Por lo que entiendo, "Multiple-unit" o MU se puede traducir como "unidad múltiple" o bien "mando múltiple". En las páginas de referencia abajo, está explicado a más detalle. En este contexto acerca de "una cabina de mando de una locomotor" me parece que la traducción correcta es "de mando múltiple/ MM".
